I"m not holding my breath. I was out of luck for the first round and my brother tried but didn't get through for the second. I'm guessing it's going to guess chances will be slim to get through.

Totally, anyone who gets them through ticketmaster is one lucky S.O.B.

I think I'll just start with Game Six (Game 3, actually) and not even bother with the first two games. I stuck waiting for Game One and Two to no avail last time, and the earlier games sell out first.

Why do they continue to do this while most people are actually at a thing called WORK?

I thought Steff told me they were going on sale this Saturday afternoon.

Really though, how many do you think will be offered per game? Less than 2500 I say.

It may be a little easier to get tix to the WS than the ALCS for no other reason than extra tickets are not available to season ticket holders for the WS like they were for the ALDS and ALCS.

We've got 2 seats for the entire season. We were offered those two same seats for the playoffs plus 2 upper deck extras for each game of the ALDS and ALCS. For the WS, all we're offered are our 2 regular seats.

Then again, I'm sure that a pile of tickets are going to be locked up for representatives of both leagues, promotional giveaways, and the visiting team. It could be a dog fight for tickets just like the first 2 series.

very interesting it says fans may purchase 4 tickets to 1 game only. Time to recruit some friends to try to get other games. And it also looks like you can't split them up to get 2 to game 1 and 2 to game 2, etc. Someone with more contacts then me needs to find this out for sure.

I know it will never change, but it really pisses me off how scarce these playoff tickets have been to the fans. I'm sure it's always been like this, just that the Sox usual absence from the playoffs has kept me in the dark. 2500-4000 tkts per game open to the public, or roughly 10%. NINETY-PERCENT of tickets GONE before they even go on sale to the public. Ridiculous.

This is the only time I've missed those extra 4500 seats they lopped off the upper deck.

Season Ticket Holders can purchase extras for the World Series if you re-up your plan. Here is the email I received from the White Sox.......

Dear Season Ticket Holder,

Are you interested in adding full season seats to your current season plan? If so, now is the time to do it! We would like to extend a limited time offer for you to purchase tickets to all four potential World Series games at U.S. Cellular Field.

A small number of tickets have been returned to us from Major League Baseball, therefore we only have a limited number of tickets available in the lower and club level seating areas.

The number of World Series ticket strips available for purchase must match the number of 2006 Full Season Tickets that you add on (limit 8 World Series ticket strips). All 2006 Season locations will be assigned on a first come, first served basis and World Series ticket strips will be available while supplies last. Please note a 50% non-refundable deposit is due for the add-on season tickets. You will be invoiced for the remaining 50%. Full payment is due for the World Series ticket strips.

If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible at (312)674-5339. Again, there are a limited number of tickets and a short time frame to take advantage of this offer.

That's not for re-upping. You have to add more seats.

SPLIT SEASON TICKET PLANS:

My friend who has a split plan, just called an upped his plan to a Full Year plan for next year and was able to secure all World Series Tickets in Section 160. It might be worth a call to your ticket rep if you have a split plan and are planning/willing to get a full plan for 2006. You Can Get World Series Tickets!

Interesting if you take a look at StubHub, there are already Game #1 listings for essentially the worst seats in the house. If those listings are legit, then it appearsx that game is practically sold out already.

Wouldn't you have a better percentage chance to get through if you buy less? Less availibilty means less tickets of four availible in one place, so then if you request less, you have a better chance of getting through. That's how TBastard works.

I've found stubhub prices to be a little inflated. Google "ticket broker".

Transactions are taking place thru StubHub, and at 4 digit prices. I've been watching this closely. There is some liquidity in that market. So be careful with your claim of "inflated". If you're thinking you will get some cheap seats day of the game, you may find this event is a quite a bit different than the ALCS.

People can post their tickets for any ridiculous price they choose, but unless someone's actually willing to pay it, it's BS. Prices at ticket brokers or even eBay are more representative of the actual market price.

Ticket brokers can post at any BS price too. And many were doing exactly this right up until gametime of the LCS. They were in no way representative of the market. And unfortunately, until an auction closes on E-Bay, you can't use the bid as any indicator of the market. With StubHub, you just have to separate the true sellers from the folks who are just testing the upper end of the market.

This would be the first World Series in Chicago since 1959. The scalping rates for the Fall Classic will be INSANE.

It's worth a shot, with class scheduling. this will be my first chance to try for playoff tickets myself, as friends and family have failed me (though it seems to be TM at fault after hearing stories).

Anyways, for those who got DS and CS tickets through Ticketmaster. Is it best to go on the site as early as possible (some early link for that waiting room thing?) or to try and get on the site at noon on the dot. Thanks

there is no waiting room in Ticketmaster. The ticket sale will pop up at noon and then you will wait some unknown amount of time

i will not post this out in public for non registered users to see because i do not want to be at a disadvantage myself. If you want to know a better way to beat ticketmaster probably how the brokers do it pm me and I will tell you. I will answer the last of the pms monday at 11:59. This way i just found out from someone else and it has got to work. This may be the best way besides having season seats to get ahold of these WS seats for face. I do want to see every WSI user have this advantage!:bandance:
